Giannis Antetokounmpo is 1st player in NBA history to finish Top 20 in 5 major stat categories
After a bright 2015-16 campaign, the Greek Freak has taken a huge leap forward, becoming the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in five major stat categories.
Antetokounmpo is putting up 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.9 blocks per game, becoming not just a jack of all trades, but a master of all.
The 22-year-old has put up these numbers in only 35.6 minutes per game through 80 games this season, also improving in his shooting percentages, shooting a career high 52.1 percent from the floor and 77 percent from the stripe.
Regardless of how he fares during the playoffs, Antetokounmpo will greatly benefit from adding a reliable three-point shot to his all-around artillery, filling out the only hole left in his game and making him an even bigger terror for opposing defenses.
Here’s one of his most recent performance against the Detroit Pistons.
